# If two matrices have the same numbers in them, then they are equal. T/F. Explain with example.

We will use the concept of matrices to find the answer.

## Answer: False

Let's see how we will use the concept of matrices to find the answer.

**Explanation:**

Two matrices are called equal matrices if they have the same order or dimension and the corresponding elements are equal. Suppose A and B are the matrices of equal order m and n and A _{m × n} = B _{m × n}, then A and B are called equal matrices.

Let us suppose we have a row matrix [ 1 2 8 ] and a column matrix as [ 1 2 8 ]^{-1 }

Then, we find that the row matrix is of the order 1 × 0 and the column matrix is of order 0 × 1. So, despite two matrices having the same elements, the matrices are not equal because their order is not the same.

### Hence, for two matrices to be equal, their elements, order and dimensions everything should be equal.
